Run in the rain


Posted by Jenna A under Running on 28 April 2012 at 6:30 AM

It's not just the UK that's been experiencing the usual April showers this week; the east coast of the USA has had showers all week, Amsterdam has been dampened and New Zealand was due a massive rainfall and gail force winds across both islands! 

So what shall we do? Curl up indoors playing Monopoly in a blanky? I don't think so! 

Challenge time: Go Running in the Rain

When the rest of the world is running for cover Tribesports is running for fun - I absolutely love the rain and there's nothing better than a to go for a run in it!

This is a great Challenge, especially if you're in training for a specific event - you want to be prepared for any weather conditions so you don't have any surprises on the day of your race.

Try and avoid going straight through the puddles - wet feet are ok but avoid getting them soaked!

Keeping your torso dry can make all the difference on longer runs so check out some of our recommended running jackets:

Nike Lady Storn Fly Waterproof Running Jacket - reflective, waterproof and warm for the ladies

Gore Running Wear MYTHOS GT Jacket aw11 - Gore-tex breathable waterproof for men available in fluorescent colours for extra visibility, more expensive but long lasting a hard wearing

Good luck wishes go out to our User of the Week Angelica B who is running her first organised event today in a rather soggy Sweden! So what are you waiting for? Get out there in the rain and enjoy your weekend!
